Leg Length Test | Dr. Jay Wilson | Chiropractor | Richfield, MN 55423

Step 1

lumbar test 1

Have the test subject wear a pair of hard soled shoes and lie across a bed, face down, with arms relaxed at each side. (The head must remain straight down throughout the test.)






Step 2

lumbar test 2

Apply equal pressure with both thumbs to the arches of each shoe. Are both legs of equal length when the bottoms of the shoes are parallel?






Step 3

lumbar test 3

Bend both legs to a 90° angle so the bottoms of the shoes are parallel with the floor. Does one leg appear shorter?









A difference of greater than 1/4” in any of the positions is clinically significant. Uneven leg length is a common sign of spinal problems that often respond to chiropractic care. Find out if we can help. Call Wilson Holistic Health now to arrange a more thorough examination!
